Dan Dodge is the co-creator of the QNX Realtime Operating system (with Gordon Bell). They began the project while students at the University of Waterloo in 1980. After moving to Kanata, Ontario, (a high-tech area outside Ottawa) to start Quantum Software Systems (later renamed QNX Software Systems to avoid confusion with a hard drive manufacturer), the first commercial version of QNX was released for the Intel 8088 CPU in 1982.
Mr. Dodge holds a Master's degree in mathematics and is the Chief Executive Officer of QNX Software Systems, a division of BlackBerry. In an earnings call on March 29th, 2012, BlackBerry CEO Thorsten Heins stated "Dan Dodge is now [BlackBerry]'s lead software architect and is responsible for driving both the QNX business and the BlackBerry 10 platform vision."
